Reversible Strands Hat
Reversible Strands for Men (and Women, too!) by Nancy Smith
Hooks & yarn
5.0 mm (H)
King Cole Anti-Tickle Merino Blend DK
2.8 skeins = 344.4 yards (315.0 meters), 140 grams

Using thinner wool and a smaller hook so needed to add 3 extra sets of increases (6 extra rows). Added some rows at the end as Daniel likes to be able to turn a brim up.

I was going to make it completely in black but Daniel wanted a bit more colour. The stitch pattern makes stripes look really good and he really likes the swirl effect too.

A really good pattern. Once I worked out that I needed to increase until the crown was 7 inches it was really easy to make the hat the right size. Lovely squashy result - and just in time for the weather to turn cold.

I think Daniel has worn this virtually every day since I gave it to him.

Later: unfortunately the hat got lost Easter 2014 - so I made another…
